Where You Hang Your Enemy’s Head

In Brief

  1. Speak to Delvin Mallory in the Ragged Flagon in Riften.
  2. Purchase the upgrades to the new Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary in Dawnstar.


Nazir will instruct you to go and speak to Delvin Mallory in the Ragged Flagon in Riften about restoring the newly reacquired Dawnstar Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary.

Travel to the Ragged Flagon and speak to Delvin. He is more than happy to restore anything you want – for a price. The total cost of restoring everything is 19,000 gold, so finishing the previous quest rewards you with enough to purchase everything and still have 1,000 gold left over if you so choose to.

You can choose to purchase the following upgrades:

  • New banners (1,000 gold): Adds new banners to the Sanctuary.
  • Poisoner’s Nook (5,000 gold): Adds a alchemists table, some poisons, some ingredients and a small garden containing many poison ingredients that will regrow.
  • Torture chamber (5,000 gold): Adds four torture victims to the Sanctuary, hung by their wrists. Each of these four victims reveals the location of treasure after being prompted.
  • Secret entrance (5,000 gold): Adds a secret entrance and exit on the other side of Dawnstar.
  • Master bedroom (3,000 gold): Adds a personal master bedroom, including dressers, weapon racks, chests and a bed. Also adds Tumblerbane Gloves. Bedroom also includes mannequin for display of clothing.

Purchasing all upgrades completes the quest.
